Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Paradigm is Excellent and impressive! On the palate, this wine is full boded, balanced, juicy and nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a delicious black currant and oak blend with notes of minerality. I also detected hints of black licorice and black pepper. The finish is dry and its bold tannins stick around for a very long time. I would pair this terrific Cab with a thick porterhouse steak. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Another great vintage with the 2013 for Napa Valley Cab! Dark ruby red color with aromas of sweet, toasty oak, cedar, ripe black cherry, currants and spice. Absolutely delicious across the palate. Flavors are big and mouth coating yet so well balanced and silky across the palate. Dense chewy refined tannins in the mid palate with great length and persistent flavors. This is a beauty that will be delicious at release but is also age worthy.
